Not much has changed for the Chrysler PT Cruiser in nearly a decade, and while that retro-flavored wagon is sorely outdated, it still has design appeal to some and has found a cult following in high-school parking lots.
Though the xB is only offered in a single model, the PT still comes with choice of four-cylinder and turbo-four powertrains, plus a convertible model.
The Chevrolet HHR takes the same formula and gives it nearly identical powertrains, plus a little crisper styling.
The new MINI Cooper Clubman is considerably more expensive than the others, but it has a third half-sized door on the passenger side and cargo doors to make loading and unloading easier.
The Clubman also has an on-the-road character that’s a lot sportier, for those who enjoy twisty paths.
